Someone Who Changes Everything - Best Friend Card

Hello, I hope everyone is having a good morning! Today I'm sharing another card for the Best Friend Challenge over on the Simon Says Stamp blog and I am using one of my new stamps from Some Odd Girl which also happens to be my first stamps from them. 

For this card I chose a Clean and Simple design. I haven't made to many with that design and it's been awhile, but I love how this one turned out.

I mostly used colored pencils to color this sweet couple, but for the dress I used my brother's gelly roll pen and for the collar of the tux I used my black zebra pen.

I know I used the same sentiment on the card I made the other day, but I just can't help it!

Supplies I used:  Paper Studio products are found at Hobby Lobby
card - Paper Studio
First Dance Mae stamp set - Some Odd Girl
hearts - lawn fawn
sentiment - Stampin Up
gelly roll pen - sakura
black zebra pen 

I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challange - Best Friends

Best Friend Ombre Card

Today I'm sharing a card that I made for a challenge, two challenges actually. I know it's been awhile since I have participated in a challenge and I hope I get to participate in more this year.

This is a new design for me, I have never made a card like this. The background is made up of hexagons that was punched out of several shades of blue and then pieced together to create an ombre background, I then scattered tiny red hearts all over.

I just love this sentiment from Stampin Up,  it says "once in a lifetime you meet someone who changes everything"

I had so much fun making this card and I already have some more ideas for cards.

Supplies I used:
Textured cardstock - Coredinations
Hexagon hand punches - Fiskars
Heart punch - Paper Studio
Sentiment - Stampin Up

I'm entering this card in two challenges.

Sanctity of Life Fundraiser

Hello everyone and Happy New Year! I hope everyone's year is going well so far.

I know that it's already January 12 and I apologize for that, but I think this post is a good way to start off the new year even if it is 12 days late.

Since January 17 is Sanctity of Life Sunday my Pastor decided that it was fitting for our church to raise money for the Piedmont Women's Center during the month of January. He and his wife handed out baby bottles for us to put our spare change or coffee money in and I am taking this challenge a step further.

Not only will I put my spare change in the bottle but I am also donating 25% of all sales during this month to the Pregnancy Medical Clinic.

       Will you help me fill this bottle? My goal is to fill more than 
        one bottle and with your help I can.
